Trash basket? You may be asking yourself who needs to write a post about that, right? Well I may be the last person ever to jump on this bandwagon, but it has been so handy for me that I decided I must share! Therefore, I am linking up with Holly from Fourth Grade Flipper for my Trash Basket Tried it Tuesday!
I inherited this basket when I moved into my classroom. It sat on a shelf for 4 years, until this year when I started using real glue!! Gasp...it has been a difficult adjustment for me, but now we just roll with it!
I'm loving Interactive Notebooks (and starting to love real glue more), but I was not in love with the mess all that cutting left in my room. My kiddos are not the best ever at getting all their trash in the can and up out of the floor.
I was inspired by some post or pin, that I now cannot find, that had an individual trash can for each group. I decided to just pass my empty glue basket around and let the kids put their trash in it.
Works like a charm! The floor is less messy and there aren't 23 kiddos up making a meandering path to the trash can!
